Re: Bored people are just... boring.
Treadmills. Good for winter. Not so much in the warmer months. I do triathlons, so, probably fitter than you as well as brighter and better organised. In the summer months I love open water swimming but when I can't I also enjoy the countercurrent in the pool in my back garden.
I also SCUBA dive - I am a technical diver and use a CCR which takes a LOT of training to get to and is really interesting. It also takes me away to lovely parts of the world.
Don't know many scientists? Let's see now... my uncle has a PHd in biochemistry, one of my aunts was, until retiring, a pharmacist with a research background. My sister has a medical degree and works with geriatrics. My partner was a nurse prescriber, also with a degree and coincidentally, despite hailing from the other end of the country also specialised in geriatric mental decline. That's one of the reasons I actually know that no one says they wished the worked harder rather than making spurious, I know more than everyone, types of claims.
I personally didn't follow a research path but stopped at MSc level. My BSc was in electrical and electronics engineering. My dad worked in the food industry in research and development.
I can't think of any other immediate relatives that worked in the sciences but I bet if I dug into cousins etc, I'd find a few. I was just sticking with the ones I actually know and interact with.
And seeing as you seem to know me so well - let me explain. I rarely watch TV (it's a running joke between my friends and I that if someones asks "have any of you watched...?" it usually ends "except Tony, of course". I do love to read. I am not a huge fan of biographical works but I enjoy most other topics. I usually find the time to read at least a book a week.
I'm a single parent as well. One of my passions is cooking. I love to prepare and cook home made food and am trying to teach my youngest to learn the basics so he's self-sufficient.
I help my partner run her own mobile catering business. She is a regular at some fairly large festivals now (such as CarFest).
Due to geography and some of them having small kids, I don't get to see my friends face-to-face as often as I'd like but we manage a few times a year. One has started and sold many multi-million businesses, one is involved in politics. Two work in highly secure sites. One lives abroad. The conversations are usually heated, fun and very interesting.
So...to recap your points, I am fit, I am educated and well read, I have friends and a life, I know quite a few actual scientists and people who work with the elderly. I am surrounded by interesting people and my life doesn't revolve around work or telling the world how "alpha" I am.
Anyway. I am done giving you oxygen. Time to get back under your bridge.
